Once you’ve mastered the basic method for crimping a pie crust, you can start experimenting with more decorative edges. In this video, you’ll learn how to make three different decorative edges for your pie crusts: one with big wide scallops, one that looks like a twisted rope, and one that looks like a shaft of wheat, an especially nice touch for Thanksgiving pies. You can create any of these edges in less than 5 minutes, and none of the edges require any special equipment beyond a pair of kitchen shears.
